The tabernacle veil...

From Rome's San Vitale…

There is the presence of the Redeemer under the veil of the sacrament. Then there is the tabernacle veil to remind us of this!
Since the late 1960s one does not see the tabernacle veil much, if ever. Like everything else, it was pitched by the moderns.
But I like to think of my Sovereign Lord as being veiled, as with all royalty, in such a mantle.
